Winter's Return

My 'think spring' mantra didn't work over the weekend because in a 24 hour period we got 16 inches of snow! :-(  To brighten my day I went looking for some colorful challenges. I found exactly what I was looking for at Play Date Cafe. The colors at the Cafe are bold and bright this week. I used these colors to create a 'Best Friend' card that includes a flower for the challenge at Our Creative Corner. Maybe these bright, bold colors along with the flower will bring our 'springtime' weather back! Ha ha ha. Who am I kidding after all it is only February!


The 'buggie' background paper and the striped paper is from a Debbie Mumm pad. The stamp and sentiment are from Inky Antics and the 'bee' die cuts are from a Cuttlebug die. The rhinestones, ribbon and flower are from my stash. I used a combination of Copic markers and Prisma colored pencils to color the image.

This is the inspirational photo from the Cafe.


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
